DCNR dedicates New Bald Eagle State Park Office and Environmental Learning Center
DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn recently joined state park officials and others in dedicating a new office and environmental learning center at Bald Eagle State Park, located along the I-80 Frontier of the Pennsylvania Wilds.
The new learning center serves as the cornerstone of the park’s year-round environmental education and interpretive programs, including:
- Guided walks
- Curriculum-based outdoor investigations
- Hands-on environmental activities
“The new park office and environmental learning center at Bald Eagle State Park will serve to consolidate both park operations and environmental education opportunities under one roof in a new, modern facility that hosts countless meetings, trainings, and learning experiences throughout the year,” said Bald Eagle State Park Manager Michael S. Winters. “Although new learning exhibits are not yet present in the new facility, the process is well underway to add these features with an expected installation date before Memorial Day 2020.”The park manager noted the new facility consolidates park functions into one site that includes two meeting room spaces, and places all administration, public contact, law enforcement, and environmental education under one roof.
“With dedicated staff and buildings like these, our Pennsylvania state park system has become a national leader in environmental education,” Secretary Dunn said. “Development and expansion of these efforts require multi-pronged, concerted efforts to succeed.”
Complementing the park’s 5,900 acres and 1,730-acre lake, the new office will help modernize and improve service to campers, boaters, and other visitors. The new learning center serves as the cornerstone of Bald Eagle’s year-round environmental education and interpretive programs, including guided walks, curriculum-based outdoor investigations, and hands-on environmental activities.
